This was supposed to be a quiet week. It wasn’t. Too much to do in too little time, and the rumblings of an oncoming cold or flu or something-or-other, all combined to make me happy to crash out earlier than usual on Thursday night. But sleep refused to come. I even tried reading some Hebrew, but that didn’t work; instead I got a headache.
So, I was feeling slightly sorry for myself when I struggled out of bed this morning. I looked at my list of things to do, and sighed. But somebody was looking after me, because I got my stuff done in record time, and even managed to get the car cleaned. (As an aside, while I never worried about using water to wash my car, back in Scotland, for some reason, it doesn’t feel right in Israel. No, I cannot fully explain it.)
Now, it’s the calm before the calm, and I have some time to offer up the usual weekly selection of links. I hope you find something for you in them:
- Animal rights activist beaten with duck
- A simple question for anguished Democratic legislators on Iran
- Best takedown of Tom Friedman comes from a grocer
- How cheats cheat; why dopers have the edge in athletics’ war on drugs
- When bad things happen to good sheep
I saw the following video at Anne’s Opinions, and thought it deserved sharing. There’s a certain Roger Cohen who comes out of this looking like an idiot.
And here’s the other excellent video from the creator, Ezri Tubi.
